buddha’s teachings #101
So as you know (if you follow me on social), I've been deep diving into a meditation and mindfulness course for the past 5 weeks. We're only half way but boy have I learnt so much already. My biggest take-away so far? That I can gain so much more peace, sweetness and joy from any moment by simply slowing down, and being truly present to the task at hand. It sounds simple I know, and...

how to find your flow
Where do you lose track of time? What is it that brings about pure joy and happiness? My sister is an artist. She says she loves creating beauty because time stands still for her. She get's in the 'zone' and nothing else matters. Scientists call this the "state of flow". Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is a Positive Psychologist that has contributed pioneering work to our understanding of... Read More »
the fear of failure
Failure is actually PART OF success. "We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes - understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."  - Arianna Huffington It sounds crazy I know, but when you look at all the wildly successful individuals in the world - Thomas Edison, Michael Jordan, Bill Gates -...

leaving a legacy
Every single one of us leaves a legacy. Your very existence has an impact on the world - whether you intend it or not. So, how do YOU want to be remembered? I was reminded of the notion of legacy powerfully last night, as my family attended the official opening of a building named in my late Aunty Sandra's honour. She had served most passionately for four decades at her workplace... Read More »
play to your strengths
You will excel only by maximising your strengths, never by fixing your weaknesses. You don't have to stick your head in the sand about what may need improving, but the point is not to FOCUS on it. Weakness fixing is damage control not development. Damage control can prevent failure, but it will never elevate you to excellence. Strengths work is often a foreign concept for a lot... Read More »
the expectation blame-game
Birthdays have a similar effect on me as New Years Eve. For me, they are these huge "time" reminders telling me that I'm another year older. My mind automatically goes into stocktake mode and wants to review and assess where I've been, where I am now and where I want to go. I am just coming off the back of my 34th Birthday (I actually forgot how old I was turning this year!), and it's... Read More »
can gratitude and desire co-exist?
Is it possible to have gratitude for what you have right now, while still wanting more? This was the topic of conversation in my business mastermind group this morning, and it sparked a hell of an interesting conversation! Does practicing gratitude for what you have, automatically lessen your desire for change, for goal attainment, for achievement in your life? In my eyes it doesn't, and... Read More »
climbing the corporate ladder?
Many of my clients come to me for the exact same reason - increasing their fulfilment at work. They want to find work that excites them, that gives them meaning, that feels GOOD - yet they aren't quite sure on what that looks like exactly. What are they passionate about? What are their biggest strengths? What unique skills, attributes and talents do they hold? What kind of lifestyle do... Read More »
crafting a life you want to come home to
I had such a great realisation last week. You see, most times when I'm away exploring the world, I never want to come back home. I want to keep going to the next place, the next sight, the next experience. The allure of endless travel always had such a strong pull, one that up until now I always felt sad to leave behind. But not this time. I was actually really excited to come home! This... Read More »
the path to passion is winding
The road to discovering your passion is never a straight one. There are pot holes, winding bends, sharp corners, delays and even u-turns. Winding up living on purpose, expressing your passions and loving the sh*t out of what you do is no accident. It is rooted in self discovery and personal development. If you're like most people, it takes dedication, work and sometimes what might feel... Read More »

“Julia’s Workshop really allowed our students to define their values and understand their own strengths and passions. Her confidence and self-belief enabled our students to gain direction and to set tangible goals for their futures. Even the staff are getting excited about leading a more meaningful and balanced life. The whole experience was fantastic and will definitely leave lasting change in our lives. PCW Melbourne is so grateful for all your work. We can’t wait to work with you again soon.”

Natalie Tommasini

“Since your Workshop my Vision sits in my heart and I see it each day so clearly. I can’t even begin to put into words the feeling in my soul! I have such clarity around what I want, my purpose, my personal legacy and the goals I want to achieve. The dreams I have inside of what I want to do in life can now be lived! Your smile touched my heart. Thank you for bringing out the best in me and for knowing that anything is possible.”
